Raw, heartfelt, sometimes painstaking but often funny, In My Own Words follows the journey of adult Aboriginal students and their teachers as they discover the transformative power of reading and writing for the first time in their lives.
In My Own Words is suitable for Secondary students in Years 10 – 12. The film would also have application as part of tertiary education courses. Teachers are advised that there is some low-level coarse language and drug references in the film.
General understandings addressed
in the film:
- The importance of education
- The issues faced by people living in remote communities
- The social, emotional and financial impact of low literacy
- The positive impact that literacy intervention programs can have on communities
